Enrollment Update
Director of Facilities and Planning, Lorrie Ruiz, provided an overview of enrollment vs. projections, and discussed the impacts of new residential development and occupancy rates, noting a current enrollment of 32,210 students and increasing daily. Ruiz reviewed next steps in determining 2016 enrollment projections.

Board members expressed a desire to see disaggregated data between new and existing developments, in order to gauge student generation rates.

Facilities Consultant, Tony Ferruzzo, reviewed the 15 Year School Enrollment Projections noting an estimated peak enrollment for Elementary Schools in 2023 and High Schools in 2027. Noting, the High School peak could continue for a couple of years, after which a decline in enrollment is anticipated. Ferruzzo added that staff will continue to watch the long term enrollment; however, at this time do not anticipate the need for a 6th high school.

Community Options & Timeline
Executive Director of Facilities, Planning & Construction, Kelvin Okino, summarized the Board discussion from the May 2015 Facilities Study Session; whereby, the Board expressed the desire to house students within their geographic area/school boundary, when feasible. Okino specified that consideration was given concerning site facility and program impacts, along with long term site sustainability and funding constraints in the recommendation to increase school size capacity for:

• Canyon View Elementary School
• Oak Creek Elementary School
• Alderwood Elementary School
• PA 5B (Eastwood) Elementary School
• Portola Springs Elementary Schools (2)

Okino stated next steps involving amendment to the Mitigation Agreement with the Irvine Company, amendment to Board Policy 7112 School Size and possibly an elementary boundary change for Los Olivos area followed by timing the needed improvements to facilitate the increased capacity.

School Facilities Improvement District
Tony Ferruzzo outlined the steps taken in creating Site and Steering Committees to facilitate a Project Prioritization Process to receive feedback concerning prioritizing facility projects should the Board and voters approve a General Obligation Bond in June 2016. Kelvin Okino and Kim Coffeen, Assistant Director of Facilities and Planning, described the projects identified from the 2012 IUSD Facility Master Plan and Education Specifications that were prioritized by the site committees. Okino outlined the project categories selected by each of the site committees as their top three priorities.

Board members voiced their suggestions and questions concerning scope, pricing and prioritization by the school sites.

Heritage Fields Update
John Fogarty updated the Board on the continued discussions regarding the second Heritage Fields school, noting there will be more than one suitable site for selection and the District’s ability to direct the formation of the second school as a K-6 or K-8 institution.
